F17CB Calculus B

Prof Jonathan Sherratt

Course co-ordinator(s): Prof Jonathan Sherratt (Edinburgh), Dr Haslifah Hasim (Dubai).


This module builds on the differential and integral calculus introduced in Calculus A, before moving on to introduce the
basics of mathematical modelling techniques using first and second order ordinary differential equations. The module
develops integration methods such as integration by parts and reduction formulae and describes applications of integration
including general areas under a curve. Solution methods for first and second order differential equations are introduced and
used to investigate various physical problems.
